Pieve di Cadore, Belluno Province
PIEVE DI CADORE | BELLUNO PROVINCE
Pieve di Cadore. This town of Roman origin has an outstanding literary and artistic tradition. It's claim to fame is being the birthplace of Titian and the artist's house, which is still standing, is now a museum. There is also a painting by Titian in the parish church (Madonna and child with Saints Titian and Andrew and Titian himself as Donator).
The town is clustered around what might justifiably be considered the parliament of Cadore. Palazzo delia Magnifica Comunita, built in 1525. Today it houses historical and patriotic reminders of the city and important early-Venetian finds uncovered in the excavations at Lagole. There is also an odd "museum of eyeglasses" which reviews the history of glass where and there are also many eyeglasses factories in the vicinity.
